Happy Christmas from Silver Shadow, sailing from Sydney to Auckland via Melbourne, Burnie (Tasmania) and a host of New Zealand inlets and islands along the way. There will be masses of luxury hotels along the route – trust the gal. So watch this space, for a casserole of best places to stay, and restaurants and fashion along the way. But please excuse the slightly truncated text as even on lovely, always-the-best Silversea, connectivity is dependent on satellites up there in the sky and it is not as fast as on dry land. Happy holidays everyone, and lots of great eating and drinking.
